Is there an age restriction to attend screenings at FilmBar?
Anyone 18+ can attend screenings at FilmBar! Those under 18 are always allowed into FilmBar as long as they're accompanied by a parent!
How much are tickets?
Our General Admission tix are typically just $9.95! Ticket prices will vary from time to time for our short-run or special-interest films.
Do you have your own parking lot?
Yes! We have 17 of our own parking spaces adjoining our building. If those are full, there's plenty of metered street parking nearby. Meters accept change and credit cards.
Do I need to buy a ticket to grab a drink at the bar?
Not at all! You can just swing by for a drink, if you’re not in the mood for a film (it happens).
It’s my birthday!
We’ve got a present for you! Come on down for a free ticket to a show on your birthday (or within a few days either side of it)!
Should I buy my tickets online?
FilmBar currently has only 76 seats, so we highly recommend buying your tickets through our web site – especially for Friday and Saturday nights!
Do you allow outside food or drink?
Quick answer? Food: yes. Drinks of any sort: no.
Longer answer: While we'd really appreciate the support by procuring your food needs from us, we understand that folks can't live on tamales and popcorn alone. (they're both REALLY good, though) So, you're welcome to bring a pizza or something from somewhere else. DRINKS are another story. We simply can't allow drinks to be brought in from the outside world. This isn't a money thing -- it's a liquor law thing -- and we have to follow the law:-)
What's your refund policy?
We're very happy to refund pre-purchased tickets, as long as we receive your refund request 2 or more business days before the start of the showtime the ticket is for. Please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org when requesting the refund, emails sent after 4pm Friday will be answered the following Monday. Please include the name of the purchaser, the date/time/film name of the screening in question, and the last 4 digits of the credit card used to purchase the tickets. Also, please bear in mind that the 75 cent processing fee for each ticket is non-refundable.
Are you equipped to assist those with hearing loss?
Yep! In 2017 we equipped ourselves with a Hearing Loop -- this first cinema in Phoenix to do so! Hearing Loops work with 80% of all hearing aids on the market today, so it's easy to tap into our loop to hear a clear audio signal. We also have headphones for those of you who could use an aural boost but don't have hearing aids:-)
I just bought a Gift Card through Groupon. What's next?
Thanks for your support! The gift card in a physical, re-loadable card that can be picked up at FilmBar during business hours! There's often someone here during the day on weekdays (even though we are technically closed) and, if you call ahead to confirm someone will be here, we'd be happy to open the door for you to get your card to you! Just bring your phone with the Groupon app on it that shows your voucher or bring a printed voucher and we'll give you your card!
Can Gift Cards be used online?
Yep! When you begin the process of purchasing tickets to a show, you'll see a place to enter your gift card number (the long one, located on the back of the card) toward the top of the page!
